About

Hello!  My name is Lisa Ann McIntosh Smith.  I live in Westfield, Indiana.  I am the mother of 3 young adult children… all out on their own now, after graduating from college.  I am going to be a grandmother for the first time next Spring!

I have worked as a Children’s bookseller for the last 9 years at a Barnes & Noble in Carmel, Indiana.  I was the lead in that department for a while and loved working there!   The fun part of my job was helping customers find just the right book for a new baby gift or a special book to share with their little one about how to care for a pet, celebrate a new sibling, or just have a fun story to make you laugh.  I also enjoyed helping teachers find books for their curriculum topics to enhance classroom learning.  While I love all of children’s media, the PICTURE BOOK holds a very special place in my heart.  They are works of art!  They are our first stories and the ones that stay with us through our lives.

  3. Thank you so much Dee… I truly appreciate that! I have always considered my book selling a ministry… for me that’s the only way to look at it! Thanks for checking it out.
